Cotswold Way

I walked the Cotswold Way in 2012, in sections, with a friend I used to work with. I’ve finally got round to putting the walk reports together into a series, showing our progress along the path. It’s not a true walking journal as I would normally create for one of...

Ridgeway National Trail

I walked the Ridgeway back in 2010, in sections, with a good friend from work. This isn’t a walking journal as my previous long distance paths have been, but it’s a collection of the day walk reports that I created for each leg. As such it has some information about...

Skye Trail – reloaded

I’m still injured, so I’m still filling my weekends by revamping my long distance walk journals with new photos and new layouts, which should hopefully enhance the reading experience. The Skye Trail from 2012 is the latest one to have magic wand waved over it and you can read about...

West Highland Way – reloaded

The West Highland Way and Great Glen Way journals are the latest walk reports to receive the new look and update. These walks were done back to back in 2008, taking me from Glasgow to Inverness, via the summit of Ben Nevis. You can read them as I walked them,...

Southern Upland Way – reloaded

I’ve revamped my Southern Upland Way journal from 2013. It now has more photos from the walk and I’ve brought together all the planning posts and walking posts into one place. The journal only covers the first eight days as I was forced to bail because of injury, but I’m thinking...

Liebster Award Nomination

First of all, as part of the protocol, I have to thank Cath (http://wellycath.wordpress.com/) for nominating my blog for this ‘process’. I read Matt’s (http://hillplodder.wordpress.com/) recent blog posting on the same topic and I’m sort of with him when it comes to ‘chain letters’ – I’d normally bin it. However,...

The Pennine Way Process

It was now or never really. I’d been waiting until as close to deadline as possible to conduct a comprehensive village survey for the Pennine Way guide book update. I figured that there was no point doing a survey months ahead of the publication, as B&Bs close, new businesses open...

Page 1 Completed!

I had an email from Bryn at Trailblazer Guidebooks last night – he hadn’t received any photos from me for the book yet and he needed something to put in the new catalogue they were having printed. He was going to go with a temporary photo for the purposes of...

"It’s Make Your Mind Up Time"

I’m old enough to remember that catchphrase, but I guess many people reading this will not be and many who do will not remember it’s origin. So answers on a postcard, in your own handwriting, or append a comment if you can tell me who made it famous and what...

Trig to Trig 2014

After yesterday’s post regarding next year’s long path I did some research and it turns out my idea isn’t new at all. The east coast around Holy Island seems to be the start/end of a couple of recognised (as opposed to official) long distance walks and I even found an...

Thinking ahead

It’s almost the end of the year and typically by this time, I’ve already got next year’s long distance path planned and often booked as well. This year though I’ve been concentrating on the Pennine Way, right up until last week and thoughts of anything else have been thrust into...
